Lecture 3 -2:
Axioms of probability (1)
•
The theory of modern probability was
developed formally by A.N. Kolmogorov of
the Univ. of Moscow in the 1920’s from a set
of axioms (such as Euclidean geometry and
other branches of mathematics).
•
From the three axioms of probability theory,
and by using logical deductions and standard
mathematical operations, we can obtain all
known results in probability.
